1 year post op Rhinoplasty, my nose and nostrils is asymmetrical. How can this be fixed? (photos)
7 months ago
I had a rhinoplasty a year ago to remove a bump from my profile and to remove some cartilage at the tip to make it a bit more refined. My nose looks crooked when I look at it straight in the mirror. And when I look under my nose I see that the nostrils are very uneven. How can this be fixed? Will septopPlasty change my profile?

Even with the few pictures that you submitted, it is obvious that your septum is crooked. I need to see a full set of pictures as described on my website to better evaluate you nose but you will need a revision if you do not like the present shape and function.
While you do have a caudal septal deflection, I would have to see better pictures from the frontal view and oblique views to determine if a revision would be prudent. Nostril asymmetry is the norm among humans, and it is far better to have a satisfactory frontal view than the better symmetry from below the line of sight.
